An Aberdeen Village Water Sale Ordinance measure was on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the village of Aberdeen which is in Brown County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 308 56.4(%) Approveda
  • NO 238 43.6(%)[1]

This measure sought to enact an ordinance which would allow the sale of the village water system. Village officials were trying to find a way to appeal the measure, they are unsure how the sale will be enacted and since it was is approved. The Ohio Secretary of State had been looking over the measure and was the one that made the final decision on if it could have been appealed or not.[2] The issue had passed through the court of common pleas, without changes being made to the language of the petition and denying the village council's plea.[3]

Proponents of the measure saw the water system as a waste of village money but officials were trying to ensure that the village will still have water usage since this measure got approved.[4]
